The Supra Vaider 2.0 is available in both men and women’s sizes. The gentlemen can choose from sizes 6 to 14 while the ladies can choose from sizes 7.5 to 11. Some users reportedly found the synthetic overlay update to fit narrower than the original, but a higher number claim that the shoe fits as expected.
The Supra Vaider 2.0 started from its predecessor's well-loved design and built from there. It exudes the same high-top urban-inspired design of the original, but this iteration displays a more minimal and futuristic style thanks to its seamless upper and synthetic overlays. The kick's overall cool demeanor would be the perfect finishing piece for a streetwear look with oomph. Men were seen pairing it with jeans, sweatshirt, and a cap while ladies dressed it in legging, shorts, skirts, or dresses for a street-inspired look with a hint of femininity.

Founded by a long-time skater named Angel Cabada, Supra debuted in 2006 in partnership with several other pro skaters namely Chad Muska, Jim Greco and Erik Ellington. The company initially manufactured sneakers for skaters but it appealed to many musicians due to its stylish colorways and sleek designs. Some personalities who were spotted rocking a pair of Supras were Jay Z, Steve Aoki, Lil Wayne, and Justin Bieber.
Cabada wanted to create Supra to provide footwear that would go well with his clothing business called KR3W, but more importantly, he was motivated to take the sneaker game up a level. Hence, the name ‘Supra,' which loosely translates to "above and beyond" in Latin.
One of the brand's most popular silhouettes is the Vaider. Released almost the same time as the company, the Vaider comes in high-top and low-top versions and displays a more straightforward design when compared to other Supra models. It combines a vulcanized sole and Supra Foam footbed for the ultimate comfort. Its latest iteration is the Supra Vaider 2.0, which comes in a lighter construct by utilizing a seamless upper that’s crafted from mesh and synthetic overlays. This kick is available in a number of colorway options.
